RPAE Shutdown - Missing RPAE file

As I was running the recording from the recorder, it became hung. I closed the tool and when I came back to re-open, I only had the name in the Media Files tab and the details showed code/script. See attached. Any way to restore to the .rpae file? Tried to rename it with the .rpae extension and that did not work. Any advice?

Navigate to your work place, check If files are available or not .

C:\Users%USERPROFILE%\workfusion-workspace\rpae_project

If you cannot find the .rpae file in C:\Users%USERPROFILE%\workfusion-workspace\rpae_project - then it was corrupted.

There is not a file folder for one I am looking for. Can I recreate from this? Seems to have all the steps.

yes, you can name this file example.rpae and save it to the C:\Users%USERPROFILE%\workfusion-workspace\rpae_project\example folder

I also have the same problem even if im creating a new one it appears as the code file but no disc file to run in the action flow. What causes this?

so if i close the opened tab on action flow i wont find the file but the txt code file.

Which version of RPA Express are you using?

If it is 1.2.0 or earlier, you need to add .rpae at the end of the filename.
